Northern Viewpoint Book Club - January: "Maus I & II"


with Christa Galipeau

Calendar Next available session starts Jan 5, 2023 at 6 pm

The book Club your Mamma Warned you About-  All Banned Books

For each book, at our discussions we will also explore when, where and why these books have been banned.

A brutally moving work of art—widely hailed as the greatest graphic novel ever written—Maus recounts the chilling experiences of the author’s father during the Holocaust, with Jews drawn as wide-eyed mice and Nazis as menacing cats. 

Maus is a haunting tale within a tale, weaving the author’s account of his tortured relationship with his aging father into an astonishing retelling of one of history's most unspeakable tragedies. It is an unforgettable story of survival and a disarming look at the legacy of trauma.
